We have Money for This?

In the Star today, it talks about spending money on art for downtown. $250,000 to be exact. The person who runs the Indianapolis Cultural Development Commission who is funding the art has a number in the City-County building which suggests that it is a city run group. So, the city will spend $250,000 on art for downtown, where people are being assaulted and beaten, but won't fund the money for jail beds.

Don't get me wrong, I think that art makes a city great, but, it is an end product of a city that has nothing else to worry about.

Right now, there are a lot of problems that we have to worry about such as crime and getting the street light in front of my house to work.

I just heard that the mayor wants to take out a loan for $1 million to pay for beds. Why? Didn't we offer $14 million to F1?
